The program, which included a two-week journey to ancestral villages in China, features a presentation and exhibit of findings by panelists Calvin B. Fung (1992), Denise Leo (1999), and Allan Yu (1997). The three also will discuss how their experience in the program has affected their community and professional work. Joannie C.
